We’re always thrilled to see a soiree photographed by V List Member Alexis June Weddings in our inbox, and today’s Connecticut wedding is one to be adored! The bride and groom both reside in North Carolina, so Abigail turned to her mom to assist in planning her wedding at Dolce Norwalk in her home state of Connecticut. By trusting vendors with whom they connected, Abigail and Bruce were able to create a team to bring their Tuscan wedding design to life. The design honored the bride’s Italian roots, and you truly can never go wrong with a palette of ivory, green, and gold. Filled with beautiful details and sweet relationships, we’re so thankful Brandi and Ryan sent us today’s soiree!

What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?

My mother! I live in North Carolina and our wedding was in my home state of Connecticut so my mom played a HUGE role in taking care of the details/decisions I was unable to be present for. Nothing would have come together the way it did without my mother’s unwavering support! On the actual day, the on-site wedding planner made sure the service and schedule went smoothly.

What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?

Connection. I come from a large Italian family and it was important to us that the people we worked with fit in with our family culture and understood our family dynamic.  If I met with a vendor but didn’t feel a connection, I didn’t feel comfortable working with them.

What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?

Classic, comfortable and intimate. I wanted our guests to feel like they were instantly a part of the family.  Aesthetically, my taste includes clean lines, classic colors, and no-muss-no-fuss decorations.  Playing to the Italian influence, we ended up with a “tuscan wedding” theme that fit perfectly with the mood and look I wanted to create.

What was your favorite thing about your wedding?

Seeing our guests meet and connect with each other.  Beyond the usual wedding things that make the day so special (the groom, the dress, the food, etc), being able to experience all sides of your collective life collide is something I will never forget.  Friends and family that have never met each other left the evening with new memories and budding friendships.

What is your best piece of advice for other brides?

Don’t stress.  The day will be the best day of your life regardless of any worries you have.  Just relax and let the day’s emotions wash over you. It is true when they say that it goes by in a blink of an eye.  Don’t worry about trying to remember every single detail as it happens. You will spend the next couple of days (read: weeks) after the wedding remembering the day like a movie and you get to experience those feelings all over again.

We love the way Abigail infused her Italian heritage into her wedding design! So perfectly elegant and gorgeous!
